"Samsung VP-D361 digital camcorder"

This camera is easy to use and fits quite nicely into your handbag for a night out.

It comes with a very thick instruction booklet which at times is a bit confusing, but it does cover all aspects of the camera.

The camera has a 2.5 inch liquid crystal display screen (lcd) to enable you to watch whilst you film or for playback. Depending on whether you film indoors or outdoors you can alter the brightness for the lcd.

The camera has a lens cap which must be removsd before filming!!! (Which you can forget to remove and wonder what is up with the camera!!!)

It does have a built in microphone to record sound as well as vision.

The quality of film is excellent and can be played back through the tv or computer with the correct leads without transferring onto a dvd.

The camera is a minidv.

You can also take still photos as well as film which i like. Saves you having to take 2 camers out with you.

It comes with a lithium battery, a power pack, ac cord, multi cable and instruction booklet, software cd, usb cable, lense cover.

I just wish that it came with a camera case and a film.

We bought a pack of 5 films which cost me £20 and I bought a cheap camera case which was £1 in Asda. We did purchase
a further battery as this does lose charge fairly quick when using the lcd screen.

I would recommend this camera to anyone as it is very easy to use as the picture quality is just as good indoors as outdoors.

    I Brought this camcorder from Argos for 179,99 and it came with a free gift - carrycase, spare battery and a 60min DV tape. I was think I was just in the right place at the right time? All the best Damo.
